Tozato Gap Checker

The Tozato Roll Gap Checker is a lightweight and ergonomic device that allows quick and accurate readings of segment rolls. Therefore, the system’s main goal is to detect problems such as alignment errors, rolls’ wear and warp. In addition, this device is equipped with a touch-screen controller interface that enables data collect instantly, as result, facilitating its use. On top of that, the system comes with a smart software, which enables graphical reports that can be stored and printed as well.

The system measures the roll gap with ± 0.0004 in of precision and, as a result, it is capable of diagnosis roll gap misalignment problems on new segments, and also abnormal gaps on refurbished segments. In conclusion, it’s a lightweight, self-adjustable, and easy-handle tool that allows continuous measuring in a quick and safe way.
